CES 2023 is officially a wrap. And while there were hover bikes and a new electric DeLorean to whet your appetite for hype, one cloud CMS provider was adamant about saving the best for last.
Solodev, the cloud platform company with a marketplace of content management offerings, just announced the launch of its Solodev Serverless CMS: a cloud-native enterprise content management system that runs serverless on AWS.
Powered by Solodev Serverless, the company's advanced stack of serverless technologies, Solodev Serverless CMS is fully deployed on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and capable of running high-availability workloads with unmatched scalability.
The product was unveiled during the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas as part of Solodev’s new "Go Serverless™" campaign.
Solodev Serverless is "CMS redefined"
Delivering a highly composable set of cloud-based services, Solodev's new Serverless CMS is designed to power both traditional and headless websites and apps, including Jamstack frameworks like React. As a fully serverless solution, it leverages a host of leading cloud-based container technologies including Docker, Kubernetes, AWS Fargate, and more – all instantly deployed on the AWS infrastructure.
Solodev Serverless CMS also delivers a range of new cloud-first features such as dynamic modules, a drag-and-drop page builder, furl management, and advanced form capabilities that include security and fraud prevention.
Solodev Serverless CMS users will also have access to the Solodev Marketplace, featuring hundreds of third-party platforms like Salesforce and advanced cloud services from AWS.
Rallying the market to "Go Serverless"
The launch of Solodev Serverless CMS is part of the company’s new “Go Serverless” campaign, promoting the benefits of serverless technology for powering modern apps in the cloud. This seems to be a critical focus for the AWS Advanced Technology ISV, which has become more of a cloud platform provider offering a myriad of services within its marketplace of solutions.
When it comes to digital experiences, one of the biggest pain points for organizations is maintaining legacy apps on servers. According to a 2022 survey by 2nd Watch, 80% of companies are still running workloads and applications on-premises, which is hindering their digital transformation initiatives. This is further compounded by a lack of skills and expertise across their IT teams for managing servers, particularly as apps become more complex and require more resources to scale.
According to the company's press release, Solodev Serverless – the technology behind the new serverless CMS – has been successfully deployed for numerous customers across a range of industries, enabling commercial enterprises and public sector organizations to enhance scalability, improve security, reduce costs, and achieve their cloud transformation goals.
One such success story was recently featured at the AWS re:Invent Conference in Las Vegas in early December, which included Solodev's case study for the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games. In this compelling example, Solodev's serverless technology and consulting were utilized to build a highly scalable architecture for the 2022 USA Games, powering its groundbreaking mobile fan engagement app on AWS.
Manage content, not servers
According to the company, Solodev Serverless is giving enterprise and public sector organizations a way to "break free" from the burden of managing on-prem servers and virtual machines, allowing them to scale infinitely to meet their growth objectives. As a composable, cloud-based solution with headless CMS capabilities, it's also enabling customers to build their own stack of DX tools and services via APIs, including advanced AWS services like AI and IoT.
From a DevOps perspective, Solodev Serverless includes everything from Git to container orchestration with AWS Fargate, cloud-based IAM with AWS Cognito, database services like AWS DynamoDB, monitoring via Amazon CloudWatch, and more. But this all buoys a marketing team's ability to focus less on server management and more on content operations.
“If you’re asking what’s next for digital transformation, the answer is clear: go serverless,” said Shawn Moore, Chief Technology Officer at Solodev. “As organizations look to modernize their websites and apps, serverless has unlocked the true potential of the cloud, allowing organizations to eliminate the burden of managing servers and focus on their apps. It also delivers unmatched scalability and enhanced security, all while reducing costs – and that’s why every business should be thinking about how to go serverless.”
Investing in serverless education and resources
As part of its “Go Serverless” campaign, Solodev has launched a dedicated microsite featuring eBooks and resources for educating the market on the benefits of serverless. This includes general information and guidance for building a serverless stack from an ecosystem of services, as well as best practices for serverless success.
“Solodev Serverless CMS is the most robust content management system designed for a composable future in the cloud,” said Matt Garrepy, Chief Digital Officer at Solodev. “Solodev has a legacy of firsts with our cloud-based CMS, and we’re giving content operations teams a radical new solution for powering their omnichannel strategies with distributed tools in the cloud. We make it easy to deploy, assemble, and start creating, from a single page to an enterprise eCommerce workload. We have the building blocks, and it’s all powered by the scalability of serverless.”
Solodev Serverless CMS is now available and can be procured on-demand through the AWS Marketplace, via public sector schedule contracts, and soon through the Solodev Marketplace. To learn more about Solodev Serverless, visit the “Go Serverless” microsite at goserverless.solodev.com.
